CORRECTION ! : Senior PKK leader misunderstood part of the process: Turkish PM’s adviser

Meanwhile, the chief adviser to the Turkish prime minister, Yalçın Akdoğan, criticized the senior PKK leader’s approach to the peace process.

“In Murat Karayılan’s statements there is an approach suggesting ‘First there will be normalization, then we will lay down the arms.’ This is not an accurate approach. The normalization stage will start after [the PKK] lays down its arms. In my opinion, Karayılan has misunderstood that part of the process,” Akdoğan said.
